Costume Stories, This Week: Grace of Monaco & Penny Dreadful

Some costume links to delight and amuse.

Game of Thrones

A preview of Daenerys’ ‘cruel dress’ revealed in this week’s episode. Judging from the pic it looks to be a sexual tease of some sort. Poor Jorah.

Grace of Monaco

Gigi Lepage talks about her work on the film that is delighting audiences at Cannes. Ahem. Seriously though do check out the costumes because they look beautifully designed and made, and in some cases recreated.

Penny Dreadful

Sky Atlantic’s brilliant new horror series starts next week in the UK. Here’s a spoiler free interview with the show’s costume designer Gabriella Pescucci.

The Talented Mr Ripley

Sophia Shillito’s well observed look back at Matt Damon as Tom Ripley in one of the most exquisitely costumed movies of all time. For some unknown reason we still haven’t covered it at Clothes on Film.
